Traffic was backed up for hours after a tanker truck flipped over on 1-95 North on Tuesday morning.

The accident happened in Mansfield, Mass., just before 5:30 a.m.

The truck flipped over near the median blocking several lanes of the highway.

The truck had to be removed from the highway in three pieces. 

The driver was transported to the hospital but is expected to be okay.

The cause of the accident is unclear at this point.
